Suggested Databases

A database is an online collection of articles that you can search by topic or keyword. Databases are great sources for articles because much of the material in ULS databases is the high quality, scholarly research information that most professors want. The databases below are good places to start your search. If these don't provide the types of materials you're looking for, consult our complete list of political science databases.
